Start teaching classes and workshops in your community with done-for-you classes that we have created exclusively for Certified Instructors.

The doors to our school opened in 2014, and since that time, we have trained and graduated Culinary Nutrition Experts in 73 countries.

In addition to the training we offer in our flagship Culinary Nutrition Expert Program, we offer our graduates the opportunity to become a part of our extended team as Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructors.

As a Certified Instructor, you have the opportunity to get out in your community and start teaching classes and workshops that we have created exclusively for this purpose.

We want to see you out in the world sharing all you know (and continue to learn). We put every effort into supporting your success.



The first step in becoming a Certified Instructor is to complete the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program at a certified level.

We run our Culinary Nutrition Expert Program every September through December. By January, our graduates (those who successfully complete the program at the Certified level) are qualified to enrol as Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructors.

The Teaching Resources Portal & Certified Instructor designation is included in the Ultimate Professional and Deep Dive Bundle.

3 Steps to becoming a Certified Instructor:

  1. Register for and successfully complete the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program
  2. Enrol as a Certified Instructor and review the materials in the Teaching Resources Portal
  3. Schedule your first class!

Once you begin teaching these classes, we will include you and your classes in our newsletter, and promote across social media. You become a part of our Academy of Culinary Nutrition Global Team.

What It Means To Be An Instructor

TRP Recipes

As an Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructor, you will have access to our exclusive Teaching Resources Portal.

In the portal you will find everything you need to teach nine carefully selected classes created exclusively for use by our instructors.

Based on over a decade of experience, we have chosen class topics that have far reach, are in demand and suitable for both a recent graduate of our program and someone who has been out in the world teaching since we first opened our doors in 2014.

What’s Included For Our Instructors?

For each of the nine classes you’ll be invited to teach, we include:

  1. Promotional Copy: You’ll receive a word document with promotional copy that you can add to emails, social media posts or blog posts to help you share and promote your classes.
  2. Promotional Flyer: A professionally designed promotional flyer using original photography that can be sent as an email or printed and shared in local businesses to help promote your classes.
  3. Promotional Images: You’ll have gorgeous professionally styled and shot images (one per class) in various sizes and formats to use across social media to help you support your efforts in getting the word out about your classes. 
  4. Original Recipes: A packet of original recipes specially created to support the class topic.
  5. Logistics Plan for a Cooking Class*: This logistics plan is to help you get set and ready for success. It includes your prep schedule, equipment list, and time blocking for a hands on cooking class.
  6. Logistics Plan for a Workshop: Prefer a demonstration-style workshop? We also include a logistics plan for a workshop that includes a prep schedule, equipment list and time blocking chart for a demonstration-style class.
  7. Teaching Materials and Talking Points: Consider this your cheat sheet. For each class you receive a fully researched and referenced guide to sharing your nutritional knowledge while teaching. This guide includes all of the recipes, outlining specific key health tips and culinary tips for key ingredients in each recipe. There is also space provided to add your own notes.
  8. Student Handout: Enable your students to follow along and leave them empowered with a handout that includes the key takeaways from the class guides, tips, strategies, all of the recipes made in class along with all of the references for the research.
  9. Shopping List: Finally, we also include your class shopping list in an editable document so you can add and remove items as needed based on any specifications you need for your class.
